Cinnamon in a diet

No single food or supplement can make you lose weight. To lose weight and keep it off, you need to reduce your caloric intake or increase your exercise level so that you burn more calories than you consume. However, cinnamon can boost your weight loss success. Use cinnamon as a replacement for high-calorie sweeteners, syrups, saturated fat and trans fat in your favorite desserts, beverages and other recipes.

Calories

Cinnamon fits well within a low-calorie diet plan for weight loss. However, it is not a calorie-free food. Cinnamon contains 6 calories per tsp. The advantage of cinnamon is that, like other spices, you do not need to use very much to flavour your food. A sprinkle of cinnamon imparts strong flavour when mixed with unsweetened whole grains, fresh fruit, dairy products or baked items.

Cinnamon v Sugar

One of the more challenging ingredients to reduce and eliminate on a diet is sugar. You may love the sweetness sugar lends to beverages, packaged foods and prepared foods. However, processed sugar offers no nutritional benefits and contains nearly 50 calories in 1 tbsp. Replace sugar, syrups and artificial sweeteners with cinnamon and you add flavor without adding calories. Sprinkle cinnamon on classic diet foods such as plain Greek yoghurt, a non-fat latte or steel cut oats. Bake apples with cinnamon for a fibre-filled, low-calorie dessert.

Balancing Blood Sugar

The results of a study published in the journal "Diabetes Care" indicate that consuming between 1g and 6g of cinnamon every day balances blood sugar levels, reducing health complications for people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Keeping your blood sugar balanced regulates your energy level throughout the day. You feel less need to snack, particularly on high-sugar items such as sweets and refined flour carbohydrates.

Plant-Based Diet

Along with other plant-based foods such as fresh produce, unsweetened whole grains, legumes, olive oil and herbs, cinnamon and other spices form the base of the Mediterranean diet plan's nutritional pyramid. In this healthful approach to eating and losing weight, you consume whole plant foods at every meal and snack. These foods provide fibre, essential nutrients, antioxidants and strong flavour but have fewer calories than animal-based fatty foods and many processed and packaged foods. Make cinnamon a part of a reduced-calorie Mediterranean diet to lose up to a kilogram (2.2lb) per week.
